    Gone Fishing

    Off to Phuket on Tuesday !

    I had planned this trip for a reunion that doesn't look like it's happening now.. A mate asked a couple of weeks ago, when are you on holidays next ?
    Actually I am supposed to be going to Phuket in November i replied ! Oh Really ? I need a holiday and have never been overseas ! You want to come with me ? Hell Yes ! he replied .

    Now as this friend is also my fishing buddy , he asked if we could catch squid there ! Yes you can ! OMG can we make this a fishing trip as well ? Yep why not ! Can we find a squidding charter ? Don't know i replied but i'll do some research !
    Well one thing lead to another and I stumbled across a facebook page for Phuket Squid Club ! Sweet ! Just what i wanted ! After chatting with a couple of them via google translate we have arranged to meet up with a few of them to go fishing . Possibly also for snakehead etc as well .

    So this could be ( i am hoping 555 ) a very different trip to what was originally planned .

    Will also be good to get my mates reaction to another country at the same time ! He is not much of a bar scene person so we will see what happens that way . But i will certainly be going out to a few even if he doesn't want to ! Staying at Summer Breeze so i'll just leave him in the capable hands of the staff there to baby sit him for me if needed 5555

    Bring on Tuesday ! Can't wait to see how this trip turns out !
    !qq!

    Sounds great, Gazmac. Anything new is a treat. And, don't forget the bar scene. It can be fun for a new-comer... even as just an observer. it's just the electric "vibe" that seems to happen. You can't "explain" it to others. It is more of a feeling than anything else.

    As I mentioned before, when my son came to visit me in 2016, he had a great time visiting the few bars I frequent, and going out for meals. And, he met all my old and current girlfriends. As it turned out, he met most of them before many of them disappeared from the bar scene, or moved to a different city. My son is not a bar guy at all, and like me he seldom has more than one or two beer. He doesn't chase the ladies, but they all seem to like him. Some of my old girl friends asked if they could "take him home" with them, 555. But, Matt is a happily married man and doesn't "mess around".

    The fishing will just be a bonus on your trip. Be sure to write a report.

    All the main bars around Bangla now have specials all night
    80baht beers and other specials

    I suggest plopping him down there at 1st to people watch and soak in the scene before dragging him into any sois

    That may loosen him up

    If he's never left the country then his idea of bar scene would be apples and oranges. As long as he's not actually averse to a little drinking and lighthearted debauchery he'll not only be enjoying himself but going back home a changed man.

    This should be a good one!

    Anything worth doing is worth overdoing. Moderation is for cowards.

    Haha yes guys i will be taking him out a couple of times whether he likes it or not ! He does drink but not a lot ! I have tried explaining to him its totally different to bars here in Perth ! Doesn't get it , so i gave up and will just drag him out !
    Yes marc26 thats exactly my plan ! Bangla rd bar and people watch to start with or maybe a few bars that have pool tables. I know he will enjoy himself !
